Nearly seven decades after the demise of Polish Jewry, Poland has once again become a key destination for Jews seeking to explore the rich Jewish heritage of a country where Jews thrived for over 1,000 years. In response to the growing demand for glatt kosher quality foods, the Etziony family in 2009 opened Kosher Delight in Poland.
In designing their glatt kosher foodservice model, Kosher Delight sought to develop a full service catering and restaurant operation that would be able to respond to the needs of individual travelers as well as large groups. Instead of offering frozen airline like meals, Kosher Delight's modus operandi was to offer the upscale dining and foodservice that Jews who eat glatt kosher expect in cities like New York, London and Jerusalem. In addition to the "five-star" menu, Kosher Delight upholds the highest kashrut standards and is certified by the Badatz Chasam Sofer, headed by Rabbi Dov Landau.
Kosher Delight's main commissary is in the city of Lodz, under the constant supervision of a team of mashgichim (supervisors) in addition to the periodic oversight visits of Rabbi Landau. The facility, monitored by the Department of Health, features a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen with the newest ovens and equipment to meet the needs of both large and small groups. All of the food in the facility is prepared by professional chefs who are experienced in preparing diverse menus, including European and Israeli (Mediterranean) cuisine. The chefs cook and bake meals daily as per the specifications of groups and individual tourists. All Kosher Delight prepared foods that are sent to hotels and other locations are double sealed and stamped with our certification so that they may be warmed in any oven or microwave. The meals can be packaged in various sizes of one or three portions or customized to meet the request of customers.
